Hi all Recently someone listed a discription of how and what to use to create there own sat dish, I have tried to find this info but cant so am wondering if the person resposible for this info can list this again. I have a friend who has a number of spare dishes who is willing to help build a suitable system for me but requires the info and how to. Any help would be much appreciated. Rod Betts

Rod, What are you trying to do? If you want legitamate access to Free to Air Satellite TV (ABC, SBS etc) then in addition to the Dish, you need an LNB which is the receiver that "collects" the signal form the dish, a decoder box and a Free to Air smart card, obtainable through Optus. If you go to you will be able to see how the whole thing hangs together. You will also need a Satellite Finder, which is basically a signal strength meter and some sort of guide as to where to point the dish to pick up the Optus C1 satellite (it's basically just East of North). The whole lot shouldn't set you back more than about $500-600 dollars. If you are looking for more than Free to Air access, then that's another story now that Foxtel has tightened things up
